I did post a question about help deciding on a replacement phone, but thought I would post here in case anyone is researching and thinking of buying one - DON'T. I am new to T-mobile and Android. If the phone worked as advertised, it would be fine, however, my phone only arrived yesterday, and I will be returning it. My phone does not power off and on as many do, mine completely shuts down constantly. In 12 hours I've pulled the battery more times than i can keep track of. It does have the latest software. I can keep it going longer if I keep the screen-on setting to 30 minutes, which of course is a super battery-drainer. I spoke with T-mobile cust. service this morning. This is a known issue, even with the recent software update that was supposed to address the problem. Not sure why they are still selling this phone. I was advised to return it and choose a different phone. I purchased the phone at the FREE promo price, and there currently isn't another 4G with similar features available for free, so I either have to choose a 3G with fewer features, pay a lot for something similar, or, as I was also advised, to wait until Monday and see if a 4G goes free. Monday is apparently the new promo day. I'll wait until Monday, but it looks like I may give up T-mobile all together, go back to Verizon (and suck up the extra plan charges) and get an iPhone. Admittedly, I didn't research well before buying, so I'm posting this in case someone else is considering the G2X.
